*Final Update* Nissan Stages Race in Dubai for Juke-R, Gallardo, 458 Italia and SLS AMG

*Final Update* Nissan Stages Race in Dubai for Juke-R, Gallardo, 458 Italia and SLS AMG

*Final Update* Nissan has finally released it official video showing the Juke-R racing this suite of super cars. The new video does not tell us much that we did not know before, but the video quality is significantly better. There is a mixture of in-car, helicopter, and shots from a similar angle as the previous video. 

*Update: The event in the video was sanctioned by Nissan, and according to its Twitter account, it will have an official video up soon. The driver of the Juke-R was Lucas Ordonez who is one of Nissan's GT Academy drivers. He took second in class in LMP2 at Le Mans in 2011, and his team won the 24 Hours of Dubai a few weeks ago. Nissan also released another "unofficial" video of the Juke-R, and it is added below the original. 

It seems like Nissan staged a race in Dubai for its Juke-R. The video below shows one of the two Juke-Rs, a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 458 Italia,  and Mercedes SLS AMG. 

It is hard to say what is going on in the video. The Nissan flags and the limited status of the Juke-R certainly makes it seem that is event was sanctioned by Nissan. 

From the video, either the Juke-R is very quick or the other drivers were not very good because the Juke-R gets out front quick and stays there.

If this is for real, and even if the small track may not be the best for sportscars, still, the GT-R engine must be beefed-up in this one...

458 (even more power and much lighter) would kick the GT-R's ass, let alone this transvestite, scripted phoniness
